Hi All! Here is an update on what has been happening with our press so far. Gary is working hard, and we appreciate all his time, hard work, never-ending knowledge and passion for letterpress.
The new half horse motor is setup and mounted to a new board. The original motor still fires up, but needs to be sent to a machine shop for some more tuning up.
This is the 22” wide birch feed table shown on in its clamping jig. The backstop is glued and is waiting to dry overnight before the lacquering process can begin.
New birch feed boards cut and edged with aluminum. The original feed board’s lamination was peeling up due to age and dampness.
Check back soon. Gary is anticipating a print run under its own power within the next couple of weeks.
Did I mention I am sooooooooooooooooooooo excited? Oh yeah, I am sure I did.
